A PhD Mechanical Engineering degree can open many doors for career opportunities. With a PhD Mechanical Engineering, candidates can specialize in one of several sub-disciplines such as mechanics, mechatronics and robotics, structural analysis, thermodynamics and thermo-science, or design.


During the approximately four years candidates work on their PhD Mechanical Engineering degree, they will conduct their own original research on a specific topic that must result in a dissertation of publishable quality. Candidates have the opportunity to investigate more deeply the discipline’s frontiers of research, like microelectro-mechanical systems, friction stir welding, composites, nanotechnology, finite element analysis, or biomechanics.


For candidates with a graduate background in engineering, who already possess the foundational knowledge in physics and material science, a PhD Mechanical Engineering could be the next step. Read more below about opportunities to start your PhD Mechanical Engineering program!
